OBJECTIVES: This study researched right atrial (RA) deformation indexes and their association with all-cause mortality among subjects with or without heart failure (HF). BACKGROUND: Although left atrial dysfunction is well described in HF, patterns of RA dysfunction and their prognostic implications are unclear. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging can provide excellent visualization of the RA. We used CMR to characterize RA phasic function in HF and to assess its prognostic implications...

BACKGROUND: Prior studies suggested that myocardial deformation is superior to conventional measures for assessing ventricular function. This study aimed to evaluate right ventricular (RV) myocardial deformation in response to increased afterload. Patients with the RV in the systemic position were compared with patients with the RV in the sub-pulmonic position with normal or only slightly elevated systolic right ventricular pressure. Correlations between global longitudinal strain (GLS), radial strain, atrioventricular plane displacement (AVPD), and exercise capacity were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) feature tracking is increasingly used to quantify cardiac mechanics from cine CMR imaging, although validation against reference standard techniques has been limited. Furthermore, studies have suggested that commonly-derived metrics, such as peak global strain (reported in 63% of feature tracking studies), can be quantified using contours from just two frames - end-diastole (ED) and end-systole (ES) - without requiring tracking software...

S ubclinical systolic and diastolic left ventricular (LV) dysfunction has been reported in previous echocardiographic studies on congenital bicuspid aortic valve (BAV). Patients with BAV commonly undergo evaluation with magnetic resonance imaging, and feature-tracking cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR-FT) is an emerging technique that assesses myocardial strain using standard cine sequences. This study investigated differences in myocardial strain between patients with BAV with preserved ejection fraction (EF) and controls using CMR-FT...

BACKGROUND: In patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), a better understanding of the impact of surgical pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) on ventricular mechanics may lead to improved indications and outcomes. Therefore, we used cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) feature tracking analysis to quantify ventricular strain and synchrony in repaired TOF patients before and after PVR. METHODS: Thirty-six repaired TOF patients (median age 22.4 years) prospectively underwent CMR a mean of 4...

Aim: CMR quantitative myocardial strain analysis is increasingly being utilized in clinical routine. CMR feature tracking (FT) is now considered an alternative to the reference standard for strain assessment -CMR tagging. The impact of observer experience on the validity of FT results has not yet been investigated. The aim of this study was therefore to evaluate the observer experience-dependency of CMR FT and to compare results with the reference standard. Methods: CSPAMM and SSFP-Cine sequences were acquired in 38 individuals (19 patients with HFpEF,19 controls) in identical midventricular short-axis locations...

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) represents the reference standard for cardiac morphology and function assessment. Since introduction in 2009, CMR feature tracking (CMR-FT) has become a frequently used tool in the assessment of myocardial deformation and wall motion on the basis of routinely acquired b-SSFP cine images. Extensive validation has led to excellent intra- and inter-observer as well as inter-study reproducibility. CMR-FT derived myocardial deformation indices such as left ventricular (LV) strain have been shown to be impaired in cardiac diseases such as cardiomyopathies as well as myocardial infarction...
